Following the meeting held in May 2018 in Columbia (USA), the conference "Mercury 2022 : current and future science of the innermost planet" will focus on all scientific aspects of planet Mercury, including both the current state of knowledge and the prospects for future endeavors. The meeting will welcome and encourage participation by the wide-ranging and diverse international Mercury science community, covering topics such as Mercury’s:
- exosphere and magnetosphere dynamics,
- surface geology and composition,
- deep interior geophysics and planetary evolution,
- fundamental physics with Bepi-Colombo.
In addition, the latest plans and developments from BepiColombo’s unprecedented mission to explore Mercury with two spacecraft's will be shared and discussed.
It will feature both oral and poster presentations (poster being prepared in A0 format with longest dimension vertically). Some splinter meetings will be organized during the conference such as the Young Scientist Working Group splinter.
